Use of slang terms is not a wise idea, as what is acceptable in generation / culture could be offensive to the next.. We must make sure we are saying exactly what we mean to and clearly enough that so that others are going to hear exactly what the manager / supervisor is trying to say. According to Dr. William F. Kumuyi, some signs of a bad listener are interruptions, inpatients, in attention, bias, and shutting down during communications (Kumuyi, 2008). These examples of being a bad listening skills help keep show the manager / supervisor attuned to how exactly they might be listening or appear to the employee as listening.

Influencing the way respondents reply to our questions or behaviour. Subjective Sociology This, in some ways, is similar to the aim in an unfocused interview.
